Colour in semi-darkness | Ludwig Wittgenstein

Ludwig Wittgenstein, Cambridge, 1939 by Norman Malcolm 

“Look at your room late in the evening when you can hardly distinguish between colours any longer - turn on the light and paint what you saw in the twilight. There are pictures of landscapes or rooms in semi-darkness, but how do you compare the colours in such pictures with those you saw in semi-darkness?

A colour shines in its surroundings. Just as eyes only smile on a face.”

Ludwig Wittgenstein. Remarks on Colour
